Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that effective March 2, 2020, Kevin McGill will be joining the Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch (PDSB) as the acting Information Technology (IT) Manager. Kevin joins us from the Community Services I&IT Cluster, Ministry of Education where he held the role of I&IT Project Manager.

Kevin has worked with the Community Services Cluster since 2014 in various roles including Technical Lead where he focused on improving methodologies and processes across the unit, Project Manager where he was responsible for the Education Statistics Analysis Branch (ESAB) portfolio including the initiation and creation of the Ontario Education Data Warehouse and management of the Ontario Student Information System and OEN project activities. He also worked on the Early Years portfolio managing the analytics solution for licensed child care. In 2017, as the Senior Project Lead he led the creation of a Portfolio Management team responsible for branch wide activities supporting multiple ministries as well as project and operational initiatives.

Kevin graduated from Queen’s University with a Bachelors in Computing, Specialization Biomedical. He recently became a certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow belt to better help drive process improvement activities.

On a personal note, he is an avid runner, completing three marathons and numerous half marathons. Over the past three years he has moved into the world of triathlons and in 2018 he completed a full Ironman race in Mont Tremblant.
